    Mama Avalon CA I form I sheet of foil into a small bowl. I then place a folded paper towel in the center and pour vinegar on it until it is absorbed. With 2 dogs and 5 cats leaving liquid out is not an option. I place the little foil container where our "furry loved one" decided to say "this is mine"! Works beautifully! Now when I know someone is coming home or if I leave I put up a baby gate!

    I got a simple recipe from Pinterest called "Odour Be Gone". It's easy and it works like a charm! I was skeptical because it was only 2 ingredients! Mix 1:1 parts mouthwash to water! Pour it in a spray bottle and mix then spritz it on the offending spot till it's damp but not soaked. Cover with newspaper, which will absorb the smell for good and leave til dry. Repeat for stubborn or old odours but so far, one treatment has worked for me! And you can use inexpensive mouthwash! Just another idea! One where you don't have to vacuum! LOL!

      @Sandra Hellewell What kind of mouth wash? The mint or the plain stuff like Listerine! I inherited my mom's rotten (bit I love her) little Chihuahua and she just goes every where! I shampoo the carpets once a month and I still cant have company over to sit in the living room cuz it still smells. thank you.

    Any kind of mouthwash works even the cheapest brand! Just make sure you put the newspaper down on the damp area you've cleaned as it absorbs the odours! When it's dry, discard the newspaper and you should smell nothing! Not dog urine or mouthwash! It is so easy and works like a charm! Hope this helps!

    I have discovered that the baking soda does work, I wasn't leaving it on the stain until it dried, it might take a while, but after it dries, I just vacuum it and come right up, works better then anything I've tried, thank you. I have tried dishwasher detergent, I just put a small amount on a wet towel and clean, but I have to say the baking soda is the best. Jenny, I was just trying anything I had to clean the spot up, never know what works.
